I am from the foothills of North Carolina. For many years I was a nomad, living in several different states and foreign countries. From those experiences I began to see the world definitely. I loved to document my travels. I wanted to relive the emotions I felt when I climbed the Great Wall or the taste and smells I experienced in Rome, or singing Karaoke in South Korea. The only way I knew how to relive those moments were through photographs. I studied film and photography in college, but something changed when I grew, saw, and experienced the world.

When coming back to the States, I felt an urge to help youth. I moved to Arizona and worked for a non-profit organization helping at risk youth. There, my own love story began, and I met the love of my life. My husband is my true love and my rock. We now reside in Bozeman, Montana. We have 4 little boys who are the light of our lives.

I am a runner, coke-a-cola drinker, mug lover, sweater weather fan, and a movie watcher. I love afternoon thundershowers and the sound of a rain on a tin roof. I'm a hopeless romantic and a die hard fan of love. My weaknesses are shoes, camera accessories, and anything Joanna Gaines.

Hi, I'm Sami!

I have always loved stories. Stories of strength, love, passion, and life. Stories are what fill my cup. They are what make me have chill bumps, tear up, and fall more in love with life every day. For six years now, I have been able to document the most important day of a couple’s life. I honestly can’t wait to see what story I’ll be able to capture next!!

Why do I do what I do?

q  & A

How do I officially book you?

Once you have paid your 50% deposit and signed your contract your date will be officially booked!!

What is your ceremony setup?

When I film your wedding, I will have two cameras set up on tripods on either side. I will then have a third camera on a gimbal moving around during the ceremony to catch all the important moments.

What about drone footage?

I’ve got you covered. Every wedding collection includes drone footage (if weather permits) I am a licensed drone pilot and know my way around flying a drone to get those awesome bird’s eye view of your day.

What is timeline planning?

Your timeline is the most important thing about your day to your planner, photographer, and your videographer. The more detailed you are about your timeline, the better. I am here to help customize the timeline to fit your needs so that we can make sure your day goes as smoothly as possible.

What about travel fees?

Anywhere within a 50-mile radius to Bozeman, MT is on me! After that we will take in account of mileage, if I need to stay overnight, airline, etc. I book everything myself and include it in your package so that you won’t have any fees afterwards.

Can I choose my own music?

Unfortunately, no. I pay for music rights and will be choosing the music to your video. I always try to get a feel for you as a couple and what kind of music fits your vibe. Music is one of the most important things when I create a video. I take my time to try and f ind the perfect one that fits you!
